Thanks to Alexey Shcherbakov and his colleagues.


This is the 1st announcement of the 13th international conference on Laser-light and Interactions with
Particles (LIP2022to
be held in Warsaw, Poland, on August 21-26th, 2022.

The call for abstracts will be opened on November 1, 2021 for subjects dealing with

      - near-field, far-field and time-resolved scattering (computations, laboratory experiments...)

      - plasmonics, other resonances and caustics (probing,  scattering enhancement, modelling...)

      - complex shaped particles and aggregates (morphology, composition, functionalization...)

      - multiple scattering and random media (dense, turbulent,...)

      - mechanical effects of light (particle manipulation, forces measurement, optical tweezers...)

      - laser beams description (contributions acoustical and quantum beams are also welcomed).

      - particle characterization methods (interferometric, polarimetric, spectral, static, dynamic...),

 The following application areas will be also welcomed:

      - two- and multiphase flow characterization (combustion, spray, bubbly flows...),

      - aerosol and atmospheric sciences (nucleation, transport, characterization...),

      - plasma and soft matter physics (nanocristallites, colloids, suspensions, aggregation...),

      - biomedical optical engineering (cell manipulation and properties, microrheology...),

      - remote sensing and free space communication (holography, lidar, turbulence...).
